About This Coffee

Tolima is the third largest coffee producing region of Colombia and accounts for 12% of the country's annual production. Located in West-Central Colombia, this region is fully inscribed by Andean mountains and the Magdalena River basin, making it rather remote and challenging to access. Today, the region collectively is planted with around 7,500 hectares of coffee spread across 1,617 producers. Average farm size hovers at 5 hectares (slightly above the country's average), and cultivation and processing processes tend to be 'traditional'. Fertilisation occurs three times a year, usually after manual weeding. Pesticides are rarely used, even to control against Broca. Instead, most producers try to remove all fallen cherries throughout the harvest and monitor their trees regularly for any sign of infection.

Coffee in the region is selectively hand harvested, with most labour being provided by the farmers and their families. Coffee is then pulped in a small mechanical pulper or hand pulper, fermented 12 to 24 hours and washed 2 to 4 times to remove remaining mucilage. Coffee will then be spread to dry on covered or open patios.
